Protecting a mother and young child from violence

Sandria acted for a mother who was separated from the father of their young child. The father had been violent during their relationship, and Sandra’s client was nervous that he was now seeking contact with his child.

Sandria supported her client through the fact-finding, and was able to help her put her case effectively, even though the father was now denying violence. The Court agreed with Sandria’s client, and the father was ordered to attend a domestic violence course and was allowed only supervised contact with his child.
